Composing 3/4 notes

Recommended Posts

I assume you're talking about the duration of a note. In this case, it sounds like you're talking about a dotted half note. If you put a dot on a note, you'll extend the duration of it by 50%, so a half note extended by 50% will become 3/4. In MML, you can use "c2." to represent a dotted half C.

Incidentally, MML is able to handle any duration of notes. If you're unable to get what you need with just numbers and dots, you can also use the & symbol to tie notes together. For example, "c4&c16" would be the C note played for the duration of a quarter note and a sixteenth note put together.

I hope that makes sense.
